Seriously: This is not okay.
Sanders: "If that is the case, your position is that there should not be any guns in America, period."She’s right, of course.
Clinton: “That is like the NRA position. No."
Sanders: “Can I finish please?!”
This “she wants to take all your guns away” stuff is exactly the sort of over-the-top scaremongering that we’ve been hearing from the NRA and NRA-bought politicians for decades. But hearing this garbage thrown around at a Democratic debate takes it to a whole new level. I’ve never heard anything like it, and it’s still hard for me to believe that Bernie actually went there.
But one organization is certainly thrilled that he did…
Wow.Sen. Sanders was spot-on in his comments about gun manufacturer liability/PLCAA https://t.co/nDjEerjkgB #DemDebate pic.twitter.com/jEScbMDFt4— NRA (@NRA) March 7, 2016
If this isn’t a wake-up call to progressives who are defending Sanders’ gun record and his current rhetoric on this issue, I’m not sure what is.
